Welcome to the Automat: The Larry Sanders Show

Posted by on

Before Girls or Curb Your Enthusiasm or Flight of the Conchords, there was The Larry Sanders Show. It was the seminal HBO comedy in the 90s filled with razor-sharp satire that skewered Hollywood while letting everyone in on the joke. It starred Garry Shandling as the vain and neurotic talk show host Larry Sanders with Jeffrey Tambor as his hapless and somewhat clueless sidekick Hank. The satirical sitcom focused on the behind-the-scenes action of running a hit late night TV show, including the writers (Jeremy Piven, Sarah Silverman), producers (Rip Torn), bookers (Janeane Garofalo, Mary Lynn Rajskub), and agents (Bob Odenkirk). Among the show’s many highlights are the celebrity guests who stop by the set to play self-parodying versions of themselves, including Farrah Fawcett, Janet Jackson, Robin Williams, Drew Barrymore, Beck, and Jerry Seinfeld. The show is truly great, which is why we’re excited to be airing it during The Automat, the DVR-friendly early morning time slot. Tune in tomorrow to The Larry Sanders Show at 5 a.m. ET/4 a.m. CT and check the schedule for other showtimes.

But why take our word for it? Here are Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Silverman, Andy Dick, and Judd Apatow on what made the Larry Sanders Show so great:

5 Times Maron’s Dave Anthony Had the Perfect Response

Maron returns May 4th at 9P on IFC.

Posted by on

Dave Anthony, standup and podcaster extraordinaire, has stealthily become a one-liner machine on Maron, playing Marc’s deadpan “frenemy.” While Dave may often say the wrong thing, we always seem to relate to him in some secret, shameful way. Before you catch Dave on the season premiere of Maron this Wednesday, May 4th at 9P, check out a few times it felt like he was living our life — and messing it up just as much as we are.

1. That moment when we realize no one is listening to our podcast.

2. Or when we remember that feelings are just nature’s way of saying it’s time to eat more ice cream.

3. That feeling you get when you realize you’ll do anything if someone else is paying.

4. For those times when we want to fight the power.

5. And of course, for those times when we realize that life is about accomplishing the little things.

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT. Season Five will feature “Weird Al” Yankovic as the new bandleader and a bevy of guests like Kevin Bacon, Kristen Schaal, Tony Hale, Aubrey Plaza, T-Pain, and more.

That 70s Show Cast Reunion

That ’70s Show Reunion Photo Proves the Kids Are Still Alright

Catch That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?
